You are my strength, I sing praise to you; you, God, are my fortress,
my God on whom I can rely. Psalm 59:17
Greetings Sweet Friends
Welcome to Summer,
Since it officially arrived on Monday.
Hope all the Dads at your house had a Wonderful
Father's Day, and that yall did a good job of spoiling
them for the day. Tried my best over here!! lol
Here is our Father's Day Table for this year, it all
started with this cute gift bag and these typical picnic
looking plates and napkins I found at the dollar tree.
Remember I told you about it last week.
Just added a blue apron, A grill towel that was a gift
from the kids a few years ago, some kitchen utensils, an
oven mitt, bar-be-cue sauce, candles, and some stars,
and some kabob skewers a timer, and a small flag decal
on the opposite side. Also had to add some boxes
and tissue paper inside the bag so it would stay open....lol
and added the things in where they looked good.
Also wound up using a table top corn hole game
to fill in some empty space.
Then used the paper plates and napkins to complete
the look, also rolled the silverware in the napkins,
and rolled them and put them in the glasses. I used
normal silverware, glasses and bowls for salad.
Our menu was filet mignon, baked potatoes, salad,
garlic bread and banana pudding, and it was
all yummy if I do say so myself. Course, our
Master Griller did the meat.....lol
and here we are..............My Sweet Hubby Jim, and Our Son Scott and our Granddaughter, Brooklyn. We actually remembered
to take some pictures for a change.
and here's the rest of the family that was here......My Sister-in-law Susan and Granddaughter dog Lola. Unfortunately, Our Daughter DeeAnna, Son-Son in Love, Jerry , and Grandson dog Lola couldn't be here, but the spoiled their Dad from afar.
So on with my Thankfuls.............
Thankful for a surprise visit from a long time friend.
He is the husband of my dear friend who passed away
from cancer back the end of February. It was great to
see him. He has lost about 10 pds, and you can tell
he is still deep in grieve but think it is neat that he
decided to come to Florida to visit all his friends
and relatives. Cause think he was getting pretty
lonely. So he spent the day and night and left
on Sat. afternoon for the home of other friends.
Thankful again for the Lasagna my neighbor sent over
last week, as we wound up having that for dinner when
Randy was here. Just had to throw together a salad
and bread and make his bed and we were good to go!
Thankful that I was able to get all the things done
for Father's day that needed to be done on Saturday.
afternoon and evening. It would have been okay if
I didn't but I was pleased that I could. as I wanted
it to be nice for our Dads.
Thankful that my Son and lil darling could be with
us for Father's Day. So that made my hubby and
Thankful for the good time we all had as
a family. Played some Sorry and also
the wii.....and of course, did some eating
#6 and 7
Thankful that we decided to go look for furniture
again, and thankful we have finally found what we are
looking for, and so glad we waited, cause the price
was much better than what we found before, and
we wound up delaying it cause we weren't totally
sure about it......
Anyway think it was a divine delay, as it turned out
better.............The new sofa also has a manual reclining
sofa and love seat. All the others have to be plugged
in or you have to have a battery pack for them,
which we were not sure how well those work. We
won't get it until some time in September tho, which
we weren't really surprised by.
So Thankful for my hubby and what a good and kind
Dad and hubby he is..........We are so blessed and thankful
for the man that he is...........
Thankful for my Son as well, he has turned out to be
a really great Dad too. Lil darling adores him and
her Grampy. And of course, he is a good Son too.
He and hubby are well loved men!
Thankful that hubby had a big breakthrough
on a problem he was having with our website.
Thankful that I decided to do a little research
on the company that makes the furniture we
were about to buy. We saw many places where
they had bad reviews and a few people said
don't walk run away from it......so disappointing
as it is.....we are grateful that we checked and
didn't waste our money. I have decided to see
if we can find a good upholsterer and go in
that direction.........so will see!
Thankful for a wonderful day with lil darling
today. and Thankful to hear she loves this
song that was taught to her by her music
teacher at school, That used to go to our
church and taught my Daughter in the
Youth choir. It just doesn't seem like a
song an 8 yr. old would like, but she
knows a lot of the words and like to
see the lyrics so she can sing along.
That just so blessed my heart.
Well, that's it for Cozy Place this week.
Thanks for coming by...............
Keep your light shining brightly,
Love, Hugs and Special
